DAILYKENN.com -- The father of a young child was fatally shot in a Chicago ally. Robbery is the suspected motive.
"They have taken an innocent man's life. His child and significant other and mother and family members have lost a good person who did nothing wrong," said Gary Leibovitz, a neighbor.
Arrested for the crime is 56-year-old Robert Burgess. Dead is 45-year-old William Smith.
Burgess is black. Smith was white.
The far-left that dominates the media and education venues has convinced most black Americans they are an oppressed minority and entitled to the belongings of their oppressors; white people.
In reality black Americans are the most prosperous sub-Saharan African group on earth and always have been, compliments of the altruistic and benevolent white majority. When that majority succumbs to displacement, African America will regress to the norm as it in Haiti and virtually every sub-Saharan African nation that was abandoned by European benefactors when colonial rule ended.
Smith was on the cusp of a new life, preparing to move to Florida to be with his girlfriend and 2-year-old son.
"It's scary and it feels like a total violation. Not only do you lose a friend, but you kind of lose that feeling of safety," Leibovitz said.
Robert Burgess, 56, was arrested in the 5100-block of South Wentworth Avenue just over 12 hours after the shooting, police said.
Prosecutors allege Burgess drove up to Smith, pulled out a gun and demanded money and, when an argument ensued, opened fire.
"Anyone living in the neighborhood, going about their regular schedule, and all of a sudden boom, your lie is over," said Tina Feldstein, president of the Prairie District Neighborhood Alliance.
At a meeting Tuesday night, community members focused on ways to stay safe, including better lighting and more cameras.
"Everybody deserves a safe community no matter where they are in the city. Every person deserves that," said one attendee.
"We have to be careful and look out for each other," said another.
Burgess, of the 6200-block of South Kimbark Avenue, was charged with first-degree murder, police said. He appeared in court Tuesday, where he was ordered held without bond.
